DaveNet: How to revive AOL.
Frontier News: "New beta releases of both Frontier and Radio UserLand for Mac OS X are now available."

Lance Knobel isn't surprised at today's economic shakeup in the Bush cabinet. "After the smarts of the Rubin and Summers tenures in the '90s, O'Neill's two years of bumbling has been a particular let down. Lindsay has inspired as much confidence as O'Neill."

He's a former editor of the World Economic Forum's WorldLink magazine, and former program director for the WEF annual meeting at Davos.

Jon Udell: Script locally, publish globally.

Looks like ole Halley is going to get a lot of teapots for Christmas. I could use one too. Maybe I'll get some of the overflow.
Last year: "It's nice to see another alpha male gain total acceptance in his alpha-ness."
Monday Blogger Dinner in Palo Alto
Looks like we're having a blogger's dinner on Monday at Jing Jing in Palo Alto (443 Emerson, 650--328-6885 ) at 7PM. Lots of famous bloggers and hangers-on will be in town for the pricey Supernova conference at the Sheraton Palo Alto. Jing Jing's is famous for sweet and spicy Szechuan food. We'll certainly have sweet and spicy conversation, made that much better if you join us.
